Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 3:7-13 is about the church in Philadelphia.
Revelation 3:7
3:7 "And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, ‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, "He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens":

There are three kinds of Jesus’ appearance for the church in Philadelphia as follows.

  • Jesus as He who is true, for justifying the congregation.
  • Jesus as He who is holy, for sanctifying the congregation.
  • Jesus as He who has the key of David, for giving it to the congregation.

Physically, the key of David refers to the one of the kingdom of Israel that was held by David and given to the person who was worthy to get it, namely Solomon.
Spiritually, the key of David refers to the one of heavenly kingdom that is held by Jesus. The key of David is useful for opening the door of heavenly kingdom. We learn it through Tabernacle. There are three kinds of door in Tabernacle as follows.

  1. The gate.
    Exodus 27:16
    27:16 " For the gateof the court there shall be a screen twenty cubits long, woven of blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and fine woven linen, made by a weaver. It shall have four pillarsand four sockets.

    There are four pillars referring to four gospels, namely Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

    Romans 10:17

    10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    Passing through the gate means the faith or believing in Jesus as the only one savior through hearing the Word in the anointing of Holy Spirit.

    There are four colors of screen of the gate as follows.

    • Purple. It refers to Jesus as a King.
    • Blue. It refers to Jesus as a servant.
    • Red or scarlet refers to Jesus as a man.
    • White or fine linen refers to Jesus as the Son of God.

    Those four colors are connected as the cross. Thus, passing through the gate means receiving the cross.

    Philippians 1:29

    1:29 For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake,

    The key of David means the faith added with the cross or the tested faith.

    The facts found in entering the gate of heavenly kingdom are as follows.

    • Repenting (the Altar of Burnt Offerings).
      It means stopping sinning to return to God or being dead to sin.
      The process is realizing the sin because of the work of the Word sharper than any two-edged sword.

      Revelation 21: 8
      21: 8 "But the cowardly(1), unbelieving(2), abominable(3), murderers(4), sexually immoral(5), sorcerers(6), idolaters(7), and all liars(8) shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."

      It is especially repenting from eight sins causing perdition.

    • Being baptized of water (Brazen Laver).
      Romans 6:4
      6:4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

      The right water baptism means that the person who has died to sin or repented is buried in water with Jesus and raised up from water with Him to get new or heavenly life like Noah and his family or eight people in the ark.

      Genesis 6:8-9

      6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
      6:9 This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God.

      Heavenly life is righteous or just, sincere or perfect, and serving and ministering to God or walking with Him faithfully and correctly. We become the instruments of righteousness. It means that we live in the grace of God. The results are as follows.

      • We are protected from the condemnation of God to come to the world or the doomsday and the hell. Our whole family can be saved.
      • The grace of God preserves our life miraculously in the midst of impossibilities in the world.

  2. The Door or the fullness or baptism of Holy Spirit.
    Romans 8:12-13
    8:12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors––not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.
    8:13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

    Holy Spirit puts to death the fleshly deeds until the flesh does not have authority anymore.

    Acts 2:41-42

    2:41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.
    2:42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.

    The fact found in entering the Door is the perseverance in doing three main services to God as follows.

    • Golden Candlestick (the days of Moses) = perseverance in fellowship (the early rain church) = perseverance in doing General Service (the last rain church) to have fellowship with Holy Spirit God in the gifts.

    • Table of Showbread = perseverance in the apostles’ doctrine and the breaking of bread = perseverance in doing Bible Study Service with Holy Communion to have fellowship with the Son of God in the Word and Christ’s sacrifice.

    • Golden Altar of Incense = perseverance in prayers = perseverance in doing Prayer Service to have fellowship with Father God in the love.

    As a result, our body, soul, and spirit have the fellowship with the Trinity of God. It means the perseverance in the shepherding pen.

    Thus, the key of David means the perseverance in the shepherding.

    Psalm 23:1
    23:1 <<A Psalm of David.>>The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

    As a result, the Lord preserves us abundantly until we always give thanks to Him.

    Hebrews 10:36

    10:36 For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:

    We have so many needs in the last days that are full of many difficulties. Nevertheless, all our needs have been fulfilled by the perseverance in the shepherding.

    James 5:11

    5:11 Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord––that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful.

    Job kept on persevering and God restored him doubly. Physically, economy, marriage, and children were restored by God.
    Job 32:1-2

    32:1 So these three men ceased answering Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes.
    32:2 Then the wrath of Elihu, the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the family of Ram, was aroused against Job; his wrath was aroused because he justified himself rather than God.

    Job 42:5-6

    42:5 "I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You.
    42:6 Therefore I abhor myself, And repent in dust and ashes."

    Spiritually, the self-truth is changed into confessing the sin, revoking the wrong saying, and receiving the truth of God.

  3. The Veil.
    This is the last door to enter the Most Holy Place or perfection like Jesus. The Veil means the crucifixion or tearing to the flesh fully or the suffering in the flesh with Jesus.

    Matthew 27:50-51

    27:50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.
    27:51 Then, behold,
    the veil of the temple was torn in twofrom top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split,

    Philippians 2:8-9

    2:8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.
    2:9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,

    Jesus was obedient until He died on the cross and the Veil was torn. As a result, He gets a name which is above every name.
    We must experience the suffering in the flesh with Jesus so that we can be obedient until our flesh does not speak anymore. We can love the Lord more than anything.
    The fact found in entering the Veil is obedience until the flesh does not speak anymore. That is the key of David and we get the power of the name of Jesus as follows.

    • The power of victory over the trinity of Satan.
      Philippians 2:10
      2:10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,

      We win over Satan with the unclean spirits, so we can keep righteous and holy.
      We are also victorious over the false prophets with the lying spirit, so we can be honest, especially about the matter of God or the true teaching Word and all matters.
      We are victorious over the antichrist with the power of mammon or the bond of money that causes stinginess (one cannot give) and greediness (one robs the possession of others and God), so we can give, even our whole life to God.

    • The power of lifting up.
      Philippians 2:9
      2:9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,

      We are lifted up from failure to success and beauty. We are justified, sanctified, and used by God in the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain or the one of the building of the perfect Christ’s body.

    • The power of renewal.
      Philippians 2:11
      2:11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

      It means the life renewal from carnal men to spiritual ones like Jesus. It begins from our tongue can confess Jesus or our sins, testify, and worship God. As a result, our life becomes sweet. We are changed to be perfect when Jesus comes a second time. We meet Him on the glorious clouds and enter the marriage supper of the Lamb.

      Revelation 19:6-7
      19:6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
      19:7 "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready."

      We enter the one thousand years kingdom of peace and New Jerusalem.

God blesses you.
